Twitter enables right to left writing

13 Aug, 2011

Twitter finally has enabled right to left writing, which is great news for languages such as Arabic Hebrew and Farsi.

Before this feature when writing in Arabic in Twitter, the tweeted message used to mixx words togather, in many times changing the meaning of the tweet. This case gets worse when adding an english word.

Now, this problem is solved and Arabic tweets can be read correctly.

It is worth mentioning that Google+ had right to left support since day one of its launch.

    …and they are taking our users that are crazy enough to use their service to benefit them..

    Watwet.com closed because of that and some other factors of course.

    In China their people knows how to keep themselves to their homebase, why do we always find ourself better fitted in the wrong side of the world?

    Facebook didn’t need any marketing in the middle east and then all the artists, singers, boy and girls signed up in less year then it took them to conquer EU and US.

    It cost them billions $$$$$ marketing and blowing up some crazy stories and lies in the newspapers just to get people to sign up in the western world.

    But in the end we middle east are just followers :D

    I hope this is too much politics :)

    I hope this is too much politics = is not too much politics.
